An event every week that begins at 6:30pm on Wednesday, repeating until November 28, 2018
In fall of 2018 – from September through November – three poets will act as Poets in Residence at the galleries in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. The workshops will take place on Wednesday evenings 6:30 – 8:30 pm (Wednesday nights after 4 pm, admission is by voluntary contribution). The workshops are designed to be drop-in (although you can stay for the whole time if you like!) No poetry experience is required.
Once you write a poem based on the exhibit, you can submit it here. It might be featured online (on the Mass Poetry or MFA website), chosen as a Poem of the Moment by Mass Poetry, or excerpted for a Raining Poetry installation!
Regie Gibson will lead a workshop at the French Pastels exhibit September 5, 12, 19 and 26.
Kathi Aguero will lead a workshop at the Shelf Life exhibit October 3, 10, 17, 24.

Certain books were “banned in Boston” at least as far back as 1651, when one William Pynchon wrote a book criticizing Puritanism.
